Welcome to the Crafty Secrets August Linky Party. This month, we are celebrating back to school and fall inspired projects. Each design team member has prepare a tutorial to inspire you. Today, I am sharing how to make coordinating digital cardstock papers by matching colors of digital pattern papers.
To start, create a new file and open the digital files to be used. Next add a new layer.
Then open the digital paper file and select the color to be matched by using the Color Picker Tool and hovering over the color to be selected. By doing this it will change the color below.
Making sure that the 2nd layer is chosen, click on the Paint Bucket Tool and then hover over the artwork and click to fill the layer.
To add texture to the color select the Filter>Texture>Texturizer.
Next select the texture to be applied. Then click Ok.
Adding texture adds visual interest to your digital artwork.
Continue creating your artwork by adding digital papers, elements, photos and journaling.
